I'm assuming that you do not have the ad-on HTTPS Everywhere installed, but perhaps you have some ad-on that is interfering with your browser.

Hello,

Restarting has happened multiple times so that isnt it.

regarding addons, there are...
Plug-ins : JavaDK 7.0.550.13 - Java, Office2010 , Shockwave Flash, Silverlight
Extensions: ADP
Services: None
Appearance: Litefox

Disabling all of them doesn't help, safe mode with waterfox crashes too.

Post created with Waterfox 28.0 - i can browse OCN, however if i go to Facebook, or Youtube, it crashes.
With Facebook it crashes as soon as the Friendlist loads on the right hand side.
Heck even the timeline loads correctly, but then comes the crash.

So I see Google has released 64 bit versions of chrome on the canary channel and dev37 channel. Stable versions are coming later although fooling around with it so far yields no crashes, etc. Yet. News at softwarecrew.com.
post #5845 of 7359
I also downloaded Canary.
I hate chrome though
post #5846 of 7359
Yeah I agree about chrome but I was just letting the folks know so if they want to play around with the 64 bit version. Be interesting to see how the finished product looks later.

Adobe Reader question — I have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed, but it's not working as it should with Waterfox. It will not open a file in Waterfox. Instead, either I can chose (in Tools>Options>Applications>Portable Documents Format) to use Waterfox's native PDF reader, to use Adobe Reader (Default), to download the file, or to ask every time. Selecting to use Adobe Reader does not open the file in Waterfox. Instead it opens the PDF file in a separate Adobe Reader window. I no longer have the option to "Use Adobe Reader in Waterfox".

The "fix" for this problem in Firefox was to delete the file mimeTypes.rdf in my Profile folder and let Firerfox regenerate that file when it next restarts. The option to open a PDF file in Firefox using Adobe Reader should then be available in the pull down menu.

That "Fix" didn't work in Waterfox. The mimeTypes.rdf was regenerated, but the option didn't become available.

My thinking is that Adobe Reader is a 32-bit program and Waterfox is a 64-bit program, so Adobe cannot open a file in Watrerfox. Is anyone else having this problem with Adobe Reader? I tried searching for posts about it in this forum, but had no luck.

You may also need to enable a setting in the plugins menu:

Or in the PDF reader itself:

http://blogs.adobe.com/acrolaw/2007/08/how_do_i_open_a_pdf_in_acrobat_i/

And just as a belt-and-suspenders approach you may want to also check the actual about:config setting (see "HOW TO DISABLE FIREFOX NATIVE PDF VIEWER")

http://dottech.org/97910/firefox-how-to-turn-off-change-built-in-pdf-reader-viewer-in-firefox-19-and-higher/

(Incidentally, I have long preferred to open PDFs externally, as I found my browser had a tendency to lock up on loading large PDFs in-browser, but to each their own. smile.gif )

Thanks Quantum.

I've experienced that lock-up as well, and will try using the external opening choice.

The other options you've suggested I will try, more to familiarize myself with them, as the external option is sounding like the better choice. Apparently Waterfox agrees, as that is the default choice.

Here's a question that has been a long time coming but I kept forgetting to ask...

I have Waterfox 18.0.1 (yes I know, please, no need to comment about it, lol)

The reason why I'm still on that version is because at the time, the next update after that there was a message stating that you had to do a clean install because it was a totally different back end and everything just needs to start fresh. At that time I panicked over this because I had like 30 browser tabs plus several plugins, etc. I figured I would get to it later, but then totally forgot about it till today when I happen to glance the net and saw a post about version 28.

SO, with that said... what steps can I take to transition over to 28 easily? Obviously export bookmarks. Write down plugin names. Save all the browser tabs as bookmarks. Is there anything else I'm missing? Any advice is appreciated, thanks!
